Locally I have available 5.18.2 and 5.18.4. IIRC, there was a considerable lapse of time between 5.18.2 and 5.18.3, but an error in 5.18.3 led to the quick issuance of 5.18.4.
The version of Module::CoreList shipped with 5.18.2 is 3.03. This version correctly has a delta for Digest::SHA in 5.18.1:
The version of Module::CoreList shipped with 5.18.4 was 3.13. This version lacks any delta for Digest::SHA for either 5.18.3 or 5.18.4:
This appears to explain why 'corelist -v 5.18.4 Digest::SHA' fails to detect Digest::SHA version 5.84_02.
Whether we can or should try to fix this at this late date should be discussed.
Thank you very much.
